Summer Conference

Washington, DC • May 29 - 31, 2024

AERE’s signature Summer Conference gathers the world’s leading environmental and natural resource economists for three days of outstanding academic programming in a collegial atmosphere.

Mark your calendars for an exciting gathering of environmental and resource economists from Wednesday, May 29 to Friday, May 31, 2024, at the prestigious Grand Hyatt Washington in the heart of our nation's capital, Washington, DC. We cordially invite you to join us for three days of knowledge sharing, networking, and collaborative exploration in the vibrant field of environmental and resource economics. This year's Conference promises to be an engaging experience, with a diverse range of participants from academia, the public sector, and private industry. 

  • Be inspired by thought-provoking talks from esteemed scholars, providing fresh perspectives and groundbreaking insights.
  • Engage in lively discussions on the latest developments, challenges, and innovations in environmental and resource economics.
  • Delve into the latest research findings, share your work, and receive valuable feedback from experts in our field.
  • Forge lasting connections with fellow attendees, building a network of peers, mentors, and collaborators.

Graduate students embarking on careers in this dynamic field will find invaluable insights and opportunities to connect with established professionals through our Graduate Student Match-Up Program, where graduate students and those further on in their careers are invited to be matched up randomly in pairs or trios and connect while at the Summer Conference. 

Don't miss the chance to be part of this intellectually stimulating event, fostering both personal and professional development. We look forward to welcoming you in Washington, DC!
